some future collaborations

Post by Willison_Knives » Wed Aug 08, 2018 8:18 pm

This is perhaps a bit premature, but I have been talking to a handle maker about some future collaborations.
I already have the knife blanks for the first batch. Will be aeb-l heat treated by peters to 62-63hrc.
The first round will be a small batch to see if anyone has interest. I'll get some pictures to add to this post of the available profiles for this first batch.
The handles will be either the customer choice or the makers choice. The blades will be thinned and finished by me. Most likely to a satin finish.
I'll let the maker chime in when he sees this. In the mean time, I'll try and get the pictures posted. Just a teaser really, maybe we can get a general idea of what people would like to see.

Left to right:
165-160-120 pettys
160 nakiri
220-250-250 gyuto

Let me know what you all think. These are work in progress, but I would be sending 4 or so of them to a handle maker to finish after I finish the blade portion.
